All products, currently distributed in pre-operational mode, will have their filenames changed to reflect this. This table lists the changes in filenames.
Note: Metop-B IASI L2 products and the AVHRR Polar Winds are currently distributed in trial mode and the ATOVS L2 products are not available yet. These are, therefore, not listed in the table.
For the products that are also distributed on the GTS-RMDCN, the bulletin headers will have CCCC = ‘EUMP’ (instead of ‘EUMC’).
At the same time, the filenames of all BUFR products from Metop-A distributed on EUMETCast and on the GTS-RMDCN will have ‘EUMP’ changed to ‘EUMC’.
Example for GRAS L1 product from Metop-A:

Our EO Portal is currently being updated to include registration for the Metop-B products. In the meantime, users wishing to receive these products via EUMETCast should register with our User Service Helpdesk.
